Maybe it's worth adding a note from the document that Scott just linked to?

It is almost impossible for a new, unfamiliar user to use it to accomplish anything.
It is NOT a Point-And-Click system or anything close to it.
10-20 years of technical experience with IBM Mainframes is required.

Why would you want to intimidate potential new users? Are you familiar with TK4-

(Hercules Turnkey System v4.00-)?  Have you viewed the installation manual at ?  The site's author,
Juergen, went to great lengths to get a system up and running with minimal
knowledge. And then there are all the Moshix videos on YouTube!  Have you seen
those?  Any one wanting to learn (about) IBM mainframes have a wealth of
information to view, on the Internet.  Yes, I agree it is difficult to find the
right place to start, but there are also forums to ask questions. or a friendlier group,
These links are all documented on
except for the group which I will be adding very shortly.
Thanks, Scott

Here's a testimonial...

It's not current, so please don't try to follow any of the instructions, but you'll get
the idea. An excerpt: "I am probably one of the more unusual Hercules and MVS
users because I used Hercules before I ever used a real mainframe." You get the idea.
